TED is a nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting ideas, typically in the form of reflective and impactful talks that last for 18 minutes or lesser. TED was founded in 1984 as a conference wherein Technology, Entertainment and Design converged, but today it covers almost all topics, ranging from science to business to global issues in more than 100 languages.
TEDx is a branch of TED that focuses on local and self-organized events organized on a smaller scale, with the aim of fostering learning and innovative thoughts through discussion on a diverse range of topics. Each event is uniquely planned and organised by the corresponding local communities, which makes for a distinctive, and intriguing discussion.
With the spirit of ideas worth spreading and sharing unique experiences, IMT Hyderabad organized its maiden TEDx event in 2017. Since then, such a conference has been conducted annually, featuring a group of speakers from wide-ranging fields and diverse backgrounds to spark and ignite deep discussion among the audience.
